While patrolling his territory, Simon's Cat dips into the lives of the many dogs in his neighbourhood, including crazy poodles, a lovestruck bulldog and a pack of mischievous puppies. With characteristic style and wit, Simon Tofield's brilliantly observed illustrations capture the comical capers of different dog breeds, and some a-meow-sing encounters with their feline counterparts.
